Bio Control Agents for Pest Controlling

Aim: alternative to pesticides and poisons usage we used biological which is the use of a pest's natural predators in controlling their populations in order to minimize their impact on economic and environmental practices.

Benefits: Virudhunagar is a rain fed agricultural farming belt and farmers cannot afford huge amount towards pest control measures hence, introducing a best pest control measures in a long term effective way is an mandatory task.

Moreover we have included rural women in this activity for rearing and production of Assassin bugs(Reduviidae) which predates on vast insect pest like Spodaptera sp. Helicoverpa sp. Most import pest affecting maize, cotton and major vegetables crop. Inclusion of women SHG in this activity enhances women empowerment through additional income to the farming family.

Self-Satisfaction of rural women will be increased because of their important and effective contribution towards alarming and ever ending problem of pest incidence facing by the farmers is being meet out by their family women.

Distinct advantages of bio control agents.

  1. It is a very specific strategy. The vast majority of the time, whatever predator is introduced will only control the population of the pest they are meant to target, making it a green alternative to chemical or mechanical control methods.
  2. Natural enemies introduced to the environment are capable of sustaining themselves, often by reducing whatever pest population they are supposed to manage. This means that after the initial introduction, very little effort is required to keep the system running fluidly. It also means that biological control can be kept in place for a much longer time than other methods of pest control.
  3. Biological control can be cost effective in the long run. Although it may cost a bit to introduce a new species to an environment, it's a tactic that only needs to be applied once due to its self-perpetuating nature.

Most important of all, it's effective. Whatever pest population we want controlled will no doubt be controlled. Because the predator introduced will be naturally inclined to target the pests, very often we'll see the pest population dwindle.
